The Dallas Cowboys need to create cap space, especially if they decide to use the franchise tag on Anthony Spencer, so they are still making cuts to open up the room that will provide some flexibility. If Spencer gets the tag, the Cowboys will need to cut another $5 million plus from the cap.

In their latest move, the Cowboys have released safety Gerald Sensabaugh. The decision saves Dallas approximately $1.4 million.

Sensabaugh confirmed his release on Twitter.

With the move, the Cowboys are in even more need of help in the defensive backfield as they retool for their new scheme.

One intriguing option will be Texas Longhorns safety Kenny Vaccaro in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft if he is still on the board. If not, the Cowboys could look for a player like Eric Reid of LSU, Matt Elam of Florida or FIU’s Jonathan Cyprien in the second-round.
